“Forget the Grand Ole Opry !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

Forget the Grand Ole Opry ( looking very, very tired and in need of management who care ), this hotel alone is worth the trip to Nashville. It's got history, tradition, style, and exudes a sense of good, old fashioned hospitality. Sitting in the lobby on our 4th and final day as I write these notes, enjoying the usual afternoon complimentary cup of hot spiced tea and cookie in front of a glowing fire in vaulted marble elegance. Lovely !

Stayed November 2012, traveled as a couple

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We stayed in a junior suite for 2 nights nice room good facilities but the noise from the building site outside front of hotel starts at 7am which you are not told about, also while we were there both morning there were explosions which if you are not expecting rather frightening
We ate in the Capital Grill which lacked in atmosphere and food average, we eat in the Capital Grille in Tampa regularly and there is no comparison.
The morning we left the tactics applied were, a lot of door banging,and at 8am a knock at the door to make sure we were up,check out not until 11am,also they turn the air conditioning turned off so as to make room warm so we won't hang around.
This is a beautiful hotel but do not sit back and think you can rest on your laurels, we spend a lot of time traveling and this could be a lot better. Out of town people beware taxes do add on a lot more than expected.

Many of the nice amenities that have been cut out of other 5 star hotels. One negative- would have liked to sit in the beautiful lobby but it was used for a wedding cocktail hour! Felt uncomfortable even going to the front desk in the middle of someone's wedding.

We stayed in August 2012 for a long weekend getaway. Great hotel. Location was convenient. Staff was always polite and accommodating. Rooms were clean. It was a great stay, but just so expensive. I didn't think it was worth the money.

The Hermitage is a beautiful hotel located just blocks away from Broadway Street in downtown Nashville. It is the place to be in Nashville. Great bars, restaurants, shopping, and entertainment are just a few blocks away. The rooms are large and very clean and the service was excellent.

We didn't stay at the hotel but we had drinks in the Oak Bar which is a great retreat from the action. It's a nice low key place to enjoy conversation and have a drink and or a light bite to eat. It is beautiful Oak panel room with comfortable seating. As a side note don't forget to go see the Art Deco, beautiful restored bathrooms! They are stunning...esp the men's room (I had a man stand guard so I could go look in it) Ladies see my pictures of it if you aren't daring enough to go in ;-)

Outstanding service at every level. Lots of room. If the little things matter this is your hotel. Great location to the new convention center, Broadway, stadium, and downtown country music venues.
Be ready to spent some coin for the room but the restaurant and bar are reasonable. One of the better hotels i've every stayed.

Room Tip: Corner rooms facing the capital building provide nice views. Good breakfast place: Pucketts and 417.
